About Krista Green

Family Circle.jpg

Krista lives on a 4 acre homestead in the foothills of Calgary, Alberta, along with her husband and 3 children.  Vegetable gardening and self-sufficiency have been a passion of Krista's for a number of years.  Krista's aspires to share her gardening knowledge with others, to help them navigate growing vegetables in the often challenging  zone  3 gardening climate.

Krista helped in the family vegetable garden growing up in Vernon BC and then later near Calgary Alberta.  At the age of 16, she started a job at a greenhouse in the Calgary area.  She continued working there  (some years only part time) for the next 10 years.  As an adult, Krista has always grown a vegetable garden in whatever space was available.  Some years that meant a garden bed in the local community garden.  

Growing healthy, organic, fresh food for her family has always been important to Krista, and through this website she hopes to help each of you who strive to do the same.
